Tossed Salad Friday

~~ Recently, I encountered one of the rudest attorneys that I have ever met (see March 28 blog).  I spoke to another one just the other day, who called me “snotty” for saying I had no idea about the status of his clients’ actions since he never returned my calls nor replied to my e-mails.  One attorney was fresh out of law school, the other sounds as if he may have voted for Harry S. Truman, so it’s definitely not an age thing. It’s just my profession, which neither values civility nor rewards respect.

 

~~The uplifting label on my morning tea assured me that, “You will feel fulfilled when you do the impossible for someone else.” Having been there and done that, I’m still disgruntled, frankly. But what’s the point of picking a fight with a teabag?

 

~~Why do people have voice-mail if they never listen?  When did it  become pointless to leave messages when prompted, because the phone owners won’t listen anyway? Three times this week I left detailed messages, and three times this week I had return voice mails that basically said, “I see you called. What’s up?”

 

~~I had an agent tell me that a real estate listing saying a home is 30 years old is not misleading when it turns out to have been built 42 years ago. The 30 is just “approximate,” she explained with a straight face. D’oh, it’s just like with people!  Everyone’s plumbing works exactly the same at ages 30 and 42, and of course, the porch never sags, either!

 

~~The April issue of my magazine has great articles, including ones about Angela Madsen, a paraplegic powerhouse, and a review of Ted Danson’s book about our imperiled oceans. http://boatingtimesli.com/NY/

 

Have a great weekend! Kalo Pascha!

GO, NY KNICKS, GO!

Fridays will never be the same
At the end of each long work week (although, really who works ONLY five days anymore?), Tossed Salad Fridays is my little reward. I enjoy it totally and wish every day had a bit of Tossed Salad in the mix!

Re: Fridays will never be the same
How very nice! Thank you so much.

Are you sure you really want me griping and groaning all week long? I sure have the material!

Have a great weekend, and don't work too hard (do as I say, not as I do).
